Canada Day fireworks, Time Lapse 1080p
« on: July 03, 2012, 04:26:51 AM »
Canada Day fireworks. Using 5fps 360 shutter thanks for Magic Lantern

The focus is a bit soft due to the old m42 lens I was using, but it's the only 1.8 I have right now.

It's a nice example. And it is pretty soft. In my experience the crop zoom requires a very sharp lens. I use crop zoom with macro lens only. Besides that softness comes from the video mode. If you do this with photo timelapse and resize it properly you get better quality and resolution.

I used the video mode. Magic lantern FPS Override at 5fps.. shutter set to 360 degrees
1.8 55mm lens open all the way, I forget the iso, I think it was 800 or 1600.... Didn't want or need to go too high... as is, I think I may be a tad too bright.

Compressed the video down for vimeo upload, 24.0 fps playback speed.

I'm more a video guy than stills guy. This is was first time with a time lapse with a weird frame rate (ie not recorded at 30fps and just played back faster)  Didn't want to risk flickering and messing around too much with stills... plus I have a fear of killing my camera sooner by using it for time lapse.
